Our 4th Blogoversary & All Ears for Bootsie Auction

Meows from Mudpie!

I'm jumping into this whole blogging thing with all four paws today to wish Mommy a happy four year blogoversary! WOW! Mommy's been blogging for FOUR WHOLE YEARS...that's longer than I've been alive!

For our first Caturday Art project together we used Pho.to to create a cute little cat collage of the 3 torties who have been a part of the last four years...Tara, Truffles...and ME!

***********************************

We also wanted to tell you about a fund-raising event that we're participating in for a poor, abandoned, and hurting kitty named Bootsie.


This is from Bootsie’s YouCaring page:

"Bootsie was abandoned in Greenville, SC a couple of weeks ago when his owners packed up and pulled away in a U-Haul. There was poor Bootsie, sitting in his driveway for weeks until some new people moved in. Then Bootsie guessed they were not coming back for him.

Bootsie’s owners never treated him for ear mites he got way back in September of last year. A hematoma and horrible scar tissue has rendered him with a lot of constant pain and scratching. The canal which is bent normally, is so thin and convoluted that no medicine can get in to help bring him some relief. Can you even imagine?

Vets I have taken him to said the ear drum may rupture, which would be excruciatingly painful, but there is nothing more they can do for him. Then I researched a surgery called a TECA (total ear canal ablation). The ear canal and ear drum are removed. Upstate vets is the only one I have found that can do it at a cost of $1,800 to $2,000 dollars.

Every time I see him he is desperately rubbing his ear on the street and he shakes his head and paws his ear all day long without cease. I cannot stand to watch it and am putting in a steroid, but I know it is not getting down to do anything to help this poor fellow. His ear is always full of infection.”

********************************

An All Ears for Bootsie Auction has been created by our wonderful friends at Dash Kitten. There are some wonderful items available to bid on, from jewelry to books to clothing and much more.

Christmas is coming up and we would love to point out the items that we've submitted for auction:

  6. What a very nice collage ! If this poor Bootsie doesn't belong to anybody, wouldn't it be better to just put him asleep ? He must suffer this poor cat.

  24. Concats on the Blogoversary! Have you seen the latet updates. He’s doing really well and may not need the surgery although his bills are already up to $800. I hope we can raise lots of money with the auction.

  25. Happy Blogoversary! We're purring for Bootsie and hope he gets the help he needs.

  26. Happy 4th Blogoversary, that is wonderful...Congratulations! Love the collage, so sweet. Big purrs for Bootsie...

  27. Oh poor Bootsie. I wonder, though, about that diagnosis. Hematomas and scar tissue sound less likely to cause pain than bewilderment about his hearing loss, which the expensive surgery wouldn't cure.

  28. Happy 4th Blogaversary! I love the collage.
